Thank you all for the kind thoughts about my puppy who was killed. On monday someone came into my job with 2 tiny kittens no more than a couple of days old. I took them home and Dakota (mom) started caring for them as if they were her own, nursing and all. I am bottle feeding them but she nurses then ans watches them like a hawk. She seems more protective over them than she was D.J. Just thought I would keep everyone updated.

An update on the kittens, one passed away from "Fading Kitten Syndrome" she went peacfully and in my hands. The other one is GREAT. He is a happy healthy baby boy almost 3 weeks old now. Dakota (momma shiba inu) protects him, cleans him and teaches him to be a good boy. She wants to play with the kitten but she gets a little too rough. He lays on his back and plays with the lights he sees above his head. Thank you all for all the support. I just want to know what to do because all Dakota seems to want to do is care for babies that can't care for themselves, and....... I am afraid everyone is going to think that all Shiba's are like Dakota when that is not the case.
